Boulter Bursaries

List of Awards


The Boulter Bursaries, also known as the Armagh Bursaries, were established in 1733 by a mortification by Hugh Boulter (1672-1742) Archbishop of Armagh. Boulter wrote that that he was motivated by "the great importance of encouraging true literature in all parts of His Majestie's dominions" and the knowledge that the University educated many students but "there are not proper funds for the maintenance of such students from England and Ireland as are of good genius, but in low worldly circumstances...". He therefore left 250 to the University, which provided for the creation of a bursary for a student from England or Ireland who had studied at the University for three years. A second bursary was created in 1773, and a third in 1806.
